11 new markets get AT&T LTE love.

The AT&T LTE train is rolling on as the company flipped the ‘ON’ switch to 11 new markets. Phoenix, Los Angeles, New York Metro, San Diego, Austin and more received the upgrade from Big Blue. The slow roll out is picking up steam for most of the major markets and they’ve been seeing the enhancements already coming and going. The dreaded New York congestion has even been catching some of the waves, letting Gothamites pull down some streaming goodness just a little bit faster.
Big Blue is committed to finalizing the expansion by the end of 2013 but hopefully we see more LTE before then. After all, Verizon has pushed out more markets than any other carrier. AT&T better not use the failed T-Mobile merger to slow down the train. Hit the break for the full AT&T presser.

Alright you CoD fans. If you are planning on attending this event you might want to be ready to go and spending the night in front of your computer and be ready to purchase. Tickets for the event are scheduled to go on sale at 10AM Tues July 19th. Be read to drop a cool $150 on these bad boys but good news 100% of ticket sales are going to the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit group that supports military veterans. According to Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg $150 wouldn’t have covered all of the expenses for the event anyways, “so this is a party about raising money for a great cause, and it’s partly about just giving something back to our fans.”
If you grab one of these tickets you can expect to visit the event both days, September 2nd and 3rd. Only two tickets may be purchased by a single person. Buyers need to know exactly who will be using the tickets as a full name and certain unspecified “info” will be required for each person buying the tickets. You must be 18 and have ID to attend the 12 acre compound located outside of Los Angeles. Plan on throwing down some pwnage with tournaments, a reveal of Modern Warfare 3′s multiplayer, a real life version of The Pit from Modern Warfare 2 that you geeks can run through, paintball games in a re-creation of Scrapyard, and oh so much more. We are talking about real life Modern Warfare here! That makes the price of the tickets almost totally worth it! Read on for more!!1

Last week Rockstar Games released their newest masterpiece, L.A. Noire upon the world. L.A. Noire chronicles the story of war hero and newly minted officer of the Los Angeles Police Department Cole Phelps as he fights crime outside and corruption inside the force. Set after World War II in a stunningly re-created 1947 L.A., players are tasked with investigating cases based on crimes from the era. After one week, does it still hold my attention?
